Pioneer Woman’s Mac & Cheese

Tuesday, June 29, 2010

I love macaroni and cheese. I like it cooked on the stovetop with a rue or custard style baked in the oven.

I really wanted to love this recipe and I thought that I would. I used sharp white cheddar and it was really strong. Gary didn’t like the white like he does the regular.

It was easy to make but I made a mess while making it:-)

025 copyAnd the final product.

026 copyVerdict: good but not a keeper. Gary definitely likes mine better. He loves the custard style the best. I liked it when it first came out of the oven but when I heated it up the next day, it wasn’t good. It had separated and wasn’t creamy. It also made a large amount. I ended up throwing it away:(

Hopefully next week I will have better luck.


I {heart} Target!

I love me some Target. I guess that I am no different from the rest of the world:) Or I should say no different than the rest of us girls.

This purse had my name all over it. It was calling me as soon as I walked through the door.

038I love everything about it. The color, the shape, & the woven part.

041 (2)I also like that it’s a little bit hippy looking. I could so go there with my clothing much to Gary’s dismay;-)

042 (2)I just had to show you some Target love. Hope everyone has a great week.


Getting to know YOU!

Sunday, June 27, 2010

It’s Sunday again so you all know what that means, some really odd and funny questions to answer. So here we go.

1.If you had 5000.00 to spend on plastic surgery what would you have done? I would definitely get a tummy suction. If I had enough, I would get a brow lift BUT not one that looks like Danielle's on HWONY!

2. Do you watch Soap operas and if so what is your favorite and why? I don’t watch soap operas.

3. Favorite clothing brand? I am not a huge clothes person. Just last night Gary and I were talking about the things I like to spend money on. Gadgets ideas like my IPod Touch, a new camera, a lens….

4. An afternoon shopping spree at your favorite store or maid service for a year? A maid service for sure!

5. would you ever vajazzle? What? I guess that I am to old to know what that is. Do tell.

6. Favorite Disney Princess? None. I had a boy and haven’t watched a Disney movie in years!

7. Last movie that made you bawl your eyes out? I am not a big movie person but I guess Beaches gets me every time.

8. Have you ever broken any bones and if so what? Just broke my toe in January of this year. It still hurts sometimes and it has been 7 months.

I am thinking whomever made these questions up is a lot younger than I am. Vajazzle? No idea what that is. Disney Princess? Can barely remember one. Favorite Clothing Brand? Could wear Target, Kohl's, & American Eagle. HA!

Head over to Keely's see what others have to say.


Questions for my readers..all 10 of you:-)

Saturday, June 26, 2010

I was reading another blog that I follow and she was talking about comments that we all receive on our blogs.

I have my blog set up where you see my email address in case y’all want to email me privately but I want to talk about the reply emails that I send out to everyone that comments.

When I receive an comment from y’all, I always reply in an email. I have done this since I started blogging. It has come to my attention that if it says your name and nore-ply comment (or something like that), you don’t receive the email. Does anyone know about this? If you are not receiving emails from me (after you comment), then I have been sending them to you and you are no receiving them.

I just think that it is nice manners to reply to all of you since you take the time to read and comment for me.

Would y’all let me know if you are receiving your emails? I would really appreciate. If you are not, just know that I have been answering every one of them even if you haven’t received one. I would like to change it if I can and then all my emails will go through but someone will have to tell me how.
